Introduction

Now, now, we may not be able to hire John Mayer himself to perform at your nuptials (we couldn’t really afford him anymore ever since he started playing those big stadium shows, shame really), but we have the next best thing: the best John Mayer wedding songs! 

So, to help turn your wedding into a wonderland~, we rounded up 30 of the best wedding songs by John Mayer, ranging from his romantic tunes, to slow and sentimental picks, and even upbeat tracks to help pick up the pace. 

Okay, now that we’ve said what we needed to say (get it? Get it?), let’s get started!

Romantic John Mayer Wedding Songs

Before wowing the world with his insane guitar prowess, Mayer first made a name for himself by being an absolute romantic, and these songs best represent that. Ranging from the steamy “Your Body is a Wonderland” to the yearning guitars and lyrics of “Dreaming with a Broken Heart,” these songs are essentially made for one of the most romantic days of your life! 

Of course, we included some underrated gems as well. For example, his cover of “XO” by Queen B (hey Beyonce fans, click this for a surprise!) gives the original a run for its money, while “A Face to Call Home” is a slow ballad perfect for walking down the aisle as you gaze at your partner’s eager face. We already can’t help but imagine your big day already! 

  1. “Gravity” (2008)
  2. “Your Body Is a Wonderland” (2001)
  3. “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” (2006)
  4. “XO” (Beyoncé Cover, 2014)

Slow and Sentimental John Mayer Wedding Songs

When he’s not making women swoon (yes, that can also include your grandma) or wowing guitar dudes (could be your dad? Or maybe even the groom?), Mayer is also known for penning down some more slow and reflection-heavy hits, making them perfect for helping settle down the guests at your wedding!

Our personal picks go to “You’re Gonna Live Forever In Me,” which is begging to be a first dance song, or “Daughters” which is perfect for the bride and father dance. There’s also “In The Blood,” which is a good slow burner to give the guests some room to breathe, while “Stop This Train” will surely make everyone sing along before the reception party even begins! 

  1. “In the Blood” (2017) 
  2. “Stop This Train” (2006) 
  3. “Born and Raised” (2012) 
  4. “Emoji of a Wave” (2017) 
  5. “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me” (2017)
  6. “Daughters” (2003) 
  7. “Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967” (2012)
  8. “The Heart of Life” (2006)
  9. “I’m Gonna Find Another You” (2006)
  10. “If I Ever Get Around to Living” (2012)

Upbeat John Mayer Wedding Songs

You’ve been pronounced husband and wife earlier and now all of the guests have arrived at the reception, meaning that the party’s about to get started! Of course, if you still want some of Mayer’s rizz (as the kids say) in your reception, then make sure you hand this list of songs over to your wedding DJ (or you can do it beforehand, just to make it easier…) 

Now, if you need a bit more direction, we think “Moving On and Getting Over” will get people on the dance floor, while “Love on the Weekend” is the perfect chill dance tune for all of your guests! That said, feel free to check out all these songs!

For example, Mayer’s “Born and Raised” album is perfect for a rustic barn wedding, as it sits perfectly well alongside country classics like Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, and Jason Aldean. Meanwhile, his seminal classic “Continuum” is more suited to a traditional and classic wedding, complete with suit and bow ties!
     
  • Consult with Your Partner – Your wedding is a partnership, so why not include your partner in picking out the songs! Discuss your favorite John Mayer tracks and find common ground to create a more personalized wedding playlist.

  • Mix Up the Tempo – Variety is key. Incorporate a mix of slow, romantic tunes for intimate moments and upbeat tracks to keep the energy high during the celebration.

     

  • Collaborate with Your Wedding DJ – Finally, make sure you talk to your wedding DJ when making the playlist! Plan for the song transitions, and ask about a backup plan just in case something goes awry. Of course, it also wouldn’t hurt to get some more advice from them, they’re the experts after all (both in playing music and fanboying over John Mayer, tbh)

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
